    PARTIAL privatisation of the Health Service is probably my most controversial view. I'll probably be shouted down for this, but there are some very legitimate reasons for introducing more competition into the industry.

    I suppose that would solve the abortion problem then.

    I wonder why he didn't advocate for men having to get a vasectomy if they lead a promiscuous life style though. :rolleyes:

    FINALLY someone who agrees there is no 'war' on drugs in the UK. People who think that (idiots like Russell Brand) need to visit the US-Mexico border as well as South American countries. The problem there is incomparable to here.
    Couldn't agree more.

    Was that relevant to the mini Hunger Games thing or to the Israel Arab conflict?

    Same with basically any other form of fetish where the other party cannot consent (necrophilia, bestiality, etc.).
    People can donate organs when they die. I think a new scheme should be started where people can donate their bodies when they die; and thereby give consent.

    I reckon we'd get a decent sized morgue going. Problem solved

    I prefer an ultimatum in which we warn the PA that we'll never recognize Palestine as a state unless it breaks off all ties with Hamas immediately.

    The belief in pretty much unlimited free speech, and that that is the only way for free speech to be meaningful I say pretty much, I would still agree with restrictions on things like libel, but pretty much everything else should be free to be said (and that includes things like hate speech).

    Perfect quote to represent how you have been misguided by the media into believing that Hamas randomly appearred out of nowhere... I'm not supporting them, but I'm not naive enough to not understand where they are coming from, bearing in mind they were democratically elected by Gazans. Israel is the opressor, what has happend throughout history when people are opressed or feel opressed is that they turn to extreme parties or ideologies to fight the opression and opressor. Just look at the rise of Nazism in Germany, ISIS in Iraq. What do these two ideologies have in common? They were for many and are still for some an alternative to "fight" the opression they have recieved.

    I disagree. I actually think that the media is not anti Hamas but anti Israel. Hamas is elected by Gazans but so is Israel's government elected by Israelis. I think both sides are equally bad; perhaps it's that Hamas uses rockets which gives them an "uncivilised" flavour to Western governments. I think the oppression would end sooner if Hamas stops firing rockers, so it'll deprive Israel of excuses to create new settlements. I also believe that talks will progress sooner if the PA ditched Hamas.

    Perhaps it's not really a state. But I'd call it a nation.

    Organised religions have no place in modern society and should be phased out.

    Esperanto should replace English as the common language of the world.

    It is the government's responsibility to ensure that all citizens' essential needs are met.

    Ofcourse opression wouldn't end more quickly if Hamas stopped firing rockets. Before Hamas Palestinians were still being opressed and killed. But ofcourse when 3 israeli illegal settlers are killed, Israel is "obviously" (extreme sarcasm" justified in the bombardment of Gaza. The British media in comparison to the American media is more against israel's violent actions, but never the less it is definatly not pro Hamas. All you need to do is watch a bit of Fox news to see why Americans are so paranoid ( Fox is very pro israel). Israel has been depriving Palestinians of rights and their land since 1948. With or without Hamas I don't see this ending. Just look at how settlements deemed illegal by the UN (Ofcourse this doesn't apply to Israel- sarcasm) have been expanding. Maybe if Israel stopped with it expansion of illegal settlements into Palestian land, parties like Hamas would'nt get elected in the first place.
